H/T Truth About It

Selected Quotes from Stephen Jackson at the Golden State Warriors Media Day:
[On wanting to be traded and requesting a trade during the summer]: “Don’t ask me questions I already answered. I feel the same way I felt last time. Y’all know I got fined, so don’t ask me the questions if you don’t want me to get fined. Kobe (Bryant) said the same thing two years ago and didn’t get a fine, but we’re not going to beat a dead horse. They know they’re wrong. But I can’t beat the NBA so I’ve got to roll with it.”
"You want me to send you an e-mail, Facebook or something? I’m a grown man, I have six kids, I’m married now, so I speak my mind. I thought I had freedom of speech but obviously I don’t."
"Every year I’ve lost somebody I felt helped me get to that, with Baron (Davis), Jason (Richardson), Al. It felt like I’m next. It feels like we’re not getting better. It’s no disrespect to guys on the team. I love all the guys on the team and I’m not saying the job couldn’t get done with them, but at the same time I came into this game a winner and I want to continue to be a winner."
Another highlight of team harmony at media day comes from Warriors’ guard Monta Ellis regarding playing with rookie Stephen Curry:
From NBA Fanhouse:

"Us together? No," Ellis said. "Can’t. We just can’t. … Just can’t."
Someone then jumped in and said to Ellis: “Do you understand, they (the Warriors and coach Don Nelson) say you can?
"They say you can?" Ellis repeated. "They say you can … but you can’t. I just want to win and you’re not going to win that way."

"It’s different," Ellis said. "When you’re trying to compare Stephen and you’re trying to go back with me and Baron (Davis) playing. It’s a different situation. You’ve got a nine-year veteran who has been in the game and understands the game and knows how to play the game and he’s got a big body.
 “You can’t put two small guys out there and play the one and the two. You’ve got big two-guards in the league. You just can’t do it. Yes, you’re going to move up and down but eventually the game is going to slow down. You can’t do it.”
